Smart move Cuz for 50 bucks more of the original price i could buy a Ps4 ($399) ...sure there wouldn't be portability but then again u couldn't compare graphics against ps4

Yes you are right,but its only about graphics.
Shield is more than a gaming console,as Nick T. mentioned: its like a smartphone
The price of the games on play store is 0.99$ - 6.99$ while for playstation 4 they are\will be expensive.
another benefit is that you can use other apps instead of just games.
You are right,i Would go for the PS4 too because instead of the shield i would rather wait for a tegra 4 smartphone,because i would get everything else + the smartphone features.

this thing is huge for a handheld, and how long does the battery last for?

A $30 Ebay controller is you can attach your current phone is still 10 times cheaper.

I'm curious whether they'll make exclusive games for the SHIELD, will companies support it?
